In brief: Bully once bullied

Bullies usually have a traumatic past, are temperamentally defiant as children and develop a sense of low esteem which they project out try to make others feel lowly.
Most of the time they have been bullied them selves. They usually suffer from mood disorder significantly dysphoria.

In brief: Inferiority

Believe it or not, bullies tend to have inferiority complexes, often from having been bullied themselves.
and yes, it can continue into adult life. Tell someone you know and trust about the bullying. Keeping it inside does no good.
